Checkley Wood is the name of a green garden village proposed for the site of former sand quarries east of Heath and Reach in Central Bedfordshire. Woburn Lakes is a world class holiday community planned for the heart of Checkley Wood.
Arnold White Estates (AWE) owns the site and is seeking to develop its vision in partnership with Central Bedfordshire Council and other local partners. AWE submitted information to Central Bedfordshire earlier this year and is promoting the Checkley Wood concept through the ongoing Local Plan process.
Checkley Wood would be delivered on the site of exhausted sand quarries, without breaking open land that would otherwise be untouched. The new settlement represents a giant leap towards meeting the need for new homes in Central Bedfordshire whilst relieving the pressure to build on untouched green spaces.
We’re excited to be promoting Checkley Wood with Woburn Lakes and would love to hear what you think about our vision. Bookmark this site to keep up to date with progress and please do get in touch using the details at the bottom of this page.
